So once again during a Run this week my calf didn’t feel right. After the rest, ice, stretching and everything but the kitchen sink, it keeps having issues. Sometimes you can do all the right things and still have no choice but to sit it out. Instead of letting it get me down, I looked up an old Flame, my Bike. After seeing what a teenager (my son) can do to someone else’s things, broken headlight, taillight and missing helmet, I decided to get her back into shape.
The one thing I have learned is when one door closes another opens. Last year I hurt my knee and stopped running for months. I decided to look into swimming. Now I swim every week! I hopped on the bike and had such a great, refreshing work-out! Cycling will give my calf a chance to rest and yet keep my fitness level up. they call it “active recovery”
It’s also very funny how whenever I pull a muscle and can’t run, I get Really Really Hungry! So getting out on that bike also keeps my head in the game.
So how did my weigh-in go?
I LOST 2 POUNDS!
That’s 9.5 in three weeks!! Let’s keep it going… “LET’S RIDE!”
